Re: Not a NZ Citizen = not an MP
What I find ironic is that none of the media here in NZ have actually pointed this out, they have been reporting it as if he will be running for a seat in parliment

Re: No chance
Damn, now I am trying to think what novel that was in but was definitely set in Greenland/Iceland
I read it more like "we like this idea and know its a problem but still want to be allowed to blow your satellites up if we don't like you this week'
Good idea! Since it would be used to shuttle things between Earth and space we need a name that suits its function...... I know! it could be called a Space Shuttle!
"SRBs have not given any trouble in Shuttle service, either" Ummmm, are you forgetting Challenger?
Re: Somebody doesn't know math I believe!
The lightsquared signal might only be -30dBm but the signal strength of the GPS signals is somewhere around -120dBm, which is a huge difference. The problem is that the lightsquared signal will saturate the input filters of the GPS Rx causing loss of signal.
More likely test interface
Looking at the high res photos on iFixit of the dock connector pads it looks like they are used for bed of nails type testing during production as you can see clearly small needle like marks on each pad. This does make sense in that for development they can fit a dock connector to make things easy but then remove it in production, relying on a bed of nails setup.
It also looks like the dock connector might clash with the screw hole beside it as the plug appears wider than the footprint for the connector.
